Cookies in a Jar
This year a friend and I spent a day making Cookies in a Jar for all our Christmas gifts. They are great for hostess gifts, teacher gifts and small gifts for friends. Working with a friend made the process go much faster as we were able to have a small assembly line. We even whipped up a batch for ourselves to enjoy well we worked. I assure you they are delicious! These costs us approximately $5.00 a jar.
If you are looking for a similar gift that is cheaper, easier & you can have you kids help you with, check out my Easy Homemade Christmas Gift post.
